Fire Department Thankful for Equipment Donations;
Still in Need of Additional Equipment

Midland/Odessa, TX (May 17, 2013) – Today, Brian Andrews, Texas Thunder music festival organizer, announced a special toll-free number (877-569-7767) to accept donations for those affected in the West, Texas tragedy. In addition, donations can be made at www.texasthunderfest.com.

“We live in a strong community but need continued financial support from those beyond our walls to rebuild our city. We are so thankful for Herb Graham and all the Texas Thunder organizers for what they are doing. It is just the beginning of a long journey to raise the funds needed,” says West, TX Mayor Tommy Muska.

“There was major damage from the blast to our schools, homes and businesses. Sixty percent of the loss was insured, 40 percent was not. Many people were injured, with other immeasurable losses. We have only raised two million dollars in donations, but have over $100 million in damage.”

In addition, the West, Texas Volunteer Fire Department received a fire engine from Siddons-Martin Emergency Group of Houston, a Pierce fire tender/tanker from Pierce Mfg., Freightliner and Siddons-Martin, and another engine is on the way from Berwyn, PA. West VFD is still in need of a Ford or Peterbilt chassis for a large grass/brush truck and many additional firefighting supplies.

The first-year Texas Thunder Music Festival in Gardendale, Texas presents an all-star, all-Texas line-up, with both musicians and fans coming together to help bring support to those who need it most.
